Abstract: This study pertains to water pollution in river Jhelum. In order to take stock of water quality, samples were collected from various points along the course of the waterbody and analysed for identification of source nature and type of pollutants present. The main parameters investigated include pH, alkalinity, acidity, total solids, dissolved oxygen and BOD. It was found that the quality of water was satisfactory at most of the points. However, at some points, minor deviations from International Standards for Drinking Water were observed in respect of BOD, CO2 and total solids. The growing industrialisation and organisation of Kashmir demands constant monitoring of water quality.
